Wondering why Roblox is not supported on PS4? Don't be. We have the answer for you too. It all started when Roblox was first released online. It was exclusively released on Xbox one making the Microsoft gaming console the only gaming console you can play Roblox on. Two interesting theories are pretty close to the unknown reason why Roblox is not on PS4.

  1. The first theory is that the exclusive deal between Xbox One and Roblox was all-encompassing. There is a lot of backroom discussion going on behind many of the deals companies make nowadays. One of them is including distribution rights. That aside, the deal between Roblox and Microsoft Xbox was a pretty big one and Roblox would not want to do anything to mess it up. This is not that surprising as there are lots of games that were specifically designed for a particular console. There are even many that the company behind the gaming console designed themselves. These kinds of games are usually only available on their gaming console and usually take a lot of time before they release it to other consoles.
  2. The second theory is that Sony Playstation might now want Roblox because the Xbox One port was bad. This could be the reason why there was no attempt to make Roblox available on PlayStation consoles since its release on Xbox One. Even with the exclusive deal between Roblox and Xbox, there are a lot of things left to be desired when playing Roblox on Xbox One. For instance, you cannot chat with other players in the game which you can do if you play Roblox on Windows or macOS. Another example is the inability to access the regular store of any game you are playing on Roblox ported for Xbox One. What makes matters worse is the fact that the interface of the game is not friendly and looks shabbily made.

Considering all the aforementioned, it is very understandable if PS4 does not want to have the game. This does not mean that the game would not later be on PS4, it simply means that both the game and the Console were not ready.

Without the final verdict from both companies, there is no way one can truly confirm when Roblox will finally support PS4 apart from speculating. The only official says on this topic was as far back as July 2016 when one of the top officials of Roblox at Roblox Stream's The Next Level said production was on and that the company was working on making Roblox available on PS4.

There have also been several discussions and theories as to why there is no official release date yet. For instance, there are confirmed sightings of job listings on the PlayStation Community Forum. There is a thread dedicated to the discussion of this kind and many fans claim the job listing is why Roblox is still not available on PS4.

Part of the job description as reported by a user called Bo3loards is that the company needs porting 3D engines that they want to adopt from the Windows platform. If this is anything to go by, it means Roblox is having issues with porting the game to PS4 and it is only a matter of time.
